We realize this combo is a bit of a stretch, but we just had to put these beauties together in the window for you. We’ve entitled them “The Autumn Roses”. Lefty is a Ceil Chapman, Marilyn Monroe’s personal fav designer. She wore many of Chapman’s dresses for public appearances to show off her “assets”.  Iconic bombshell approved!

We are back to our ‘old’ selves this week, with a full vintage window for your peepers to peep at. As you can see, we’ve given up on having a real summer and are fully embracing the fall look now. So stock up on the hot cocoa and get ready to layer ladies. Doing your seasonal closet switch up soon? We are currently accepting in fall/winter items for consignment. Please send pics of your goodies to us at info@thecatsmeowcouture.com to initiate the process.

So sorry we are tardy with this posting-we were on vacation up north last week… We are now refreshed and ready to give you the full fashion treatment you deserve. The current window features all contemporary designer outfits, a first for us! Today may be the hottest day on record this summer, but here at the Meow Meow-we are fully into fall mode.

We had our new window all ready to go for this week, but it was just too fabulous. As soon as we took the pic, the McQueen on the right got snapped up-literally! Buh bye ↓

So it’s bonus time now at the Meow Meow, and here’s is our fresh (pearl) window.

Recognize that 1960′s hand embellished dress on the left? That probably because you have seen it being modelled by Johanna Soderberg from the band First Aid Kit. They are featured in September’s issue of Fashion magazine, out now.

This post is brought to you from our friend, Mother Earth. “Mother Earth-hosting your existence since the dawn of  humanity.”

Did you know that the process to produce new textiles is toxic to our planet?  Pesticides, petrochemicals, nitrous oxide, caustic soda, sulphuric acid, solvents, dyes and bleach amongst others are used in manufacturing daily.  Aside from being extreme and pulling an Eve by covering yourself with leaves, why not choose vintage? Not only is vintage the original choice for the fashion conscious lady, it is the eco-friendly way. This week’s window installation is sage coloured, as a friendly & subtle reminder for us all to be a little more green.

It’s finally August, and it’s not going to get any hotter than this kittens.  So leave the dark & heavy tones for fall and kick your heels up in a light and frothy hue. Grab one of our hand beaded 1960′s dresses (centre & left) or the contemporary Ferreti on the right for that event. Take the high road in cream and rise to the top.

We received an email from our customer Lynn about her daughter Sabryna’s prom dress that she purchased from The Cat’s Meow. She states;

“Hi there,
We have been meaning to send these photos over to you since my daughter,
Sabryna’s Prom in May. Great evening, Fabulous dress.  With the exception of
a grosgrain ribbon and crinoline which we needed to buy,  the dress was a
perfect fit, length and everything.
Thank you so much. FYI your staff are terrific.
Lynn Ruggles”

Check out Sabryna beaming below↓

It’s been awhile since we’ve had the opportunity to do an ‘Out and About’ posting, we would love to do more!! Have you worn one of our dresses out and have pics? If so, why not submit them to us so that we may post them? Please send all emails to; info@thecatsmeowcouture.com.  Hope to hear from you all soon!

When times are tough, who do you lean on? One may discover a new friend when life throws them a curve ball. Someone you may have never thought would become so important to you becomes your ‘true blue’ buddy. Interesting fact; ’True blue’ is supposed to derive from the blue cloth that was made at Coventry, England in the late middle ages. The town’s dyers had a reputation for producing material that didn’t fade with washing, that is, it remained ‘fast’ or ‘true’.  So now you know :)

These outfits are as busy as the bees this time of year. Whether or not you’re one for wearing patterns, you have to appreciate a great print when you see one. How tongue-in-cheek is that centre Moschino blazer? It would be a fabulous statement if one were to wear it into a courtroom as if to say ‘c’mon, hit me with your best shot’! Whatever you do, do not wear it while strolling by an archery, dart board, or firing range…
